About COVID-19 Postponement

  • Is WTS Bermuda 2020 postponed?

    On March 14 the Executive Board of the International Triathlon Union (ITU) has suspended all World Triathlon activities through April 30 - forcing postponement of the April 18th MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda. We understand and support this decision. We are working closely with the ITU for future dates later this year. Bermuda remains a Level 1 destination with no known cases of COVID-19.

    For updates please visit tribermuda.com and social channels.

  • I’m a registered Age Group athlete – how does the postponement effect me?

    An email has been sent to all registered athletes. World Triathlon Bermuda organisers will provide additional information directly to you by email no later than March 23 regarding refunds and rescheduling. We intend to offer all registered participants the choice of a refund or a reserved spot pending the event’s rescheduling. This process will begin after March 23 as we need time to coordinate with our partners. All the best in your continued training and stay healthy.

  • Are the RenaissanceRe Kids Duathlon and Free Kids Coaching Clinics postponed?

    MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda weekend has been postponed, including the RenaissanceRe Kids Duathlon race and all side events. Kids already registered will remain registered until a new date is announced.

    The free Triathlon Kids Coaching Clinics on Sundays will continue at National Sports Centre, North Field. Enjoying fresh air, exercise and a bit of healthy fun is a good way to stay upbeat in these uncertain times.

    We do ask all parents to be additionally cautious, and if you or your child are suffering any flu-like symptoms, fever, cough or shortness of breath, we ask that you do not attend. We appreciate your cooperation as we practise preventative measures.

  • I’m a registered volunteer - what happens now that it’s postponed?

    Thank you for being part of the wonderful volunteer team for MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda. We hope that you’ll be available later this year once a rescheduled date is announced.

    In the meantime, we will keep your volunteer position/s confirmed and in the registration system. You are not required to take any action. We will be in touch again when we know more. We wish to thank you for your continued support and encourage you to stay healthy and informed, visit www.gov.bm/coronavirus for updates from Bermuda’s public health experts.

General and Entry Topics

  • What is triathlon?

    A triathlon is a multi-disciplined sport where each competitor starts with a swim, then cycles and then runs. Between each discipline, the competitor returns to the Transition Area (TA), where the bike is racked during the swim and the run. The Transition Area is where the competitor changes from swim to bike and from bike to run. This amateur event has staggered starts by Age Group and it has one transition area, the City Hall carpark in Hamilton.

  • How can I enter?

    Registration for April 18th, 2020 is now open! Please click here to register.

  • In which distances can I participate?

    We are offering the following distances as individual and relay.

    • Standard Distance = 1500m swim; 40km bike; 10km run
    • Sprint Distance = 750m swim; 20km bike; 5km run
  • How does the relay work?

    Relay teams will compete over either the Standard distance or the Sprint distance. There can be two or three people competing as a team under one race number. One team member will swim the 1500m or 750m swim course, one team member will cycle the 40km or 20km bike course, and the third team member will run the 10km or 5km run course. If there are two in a team, one person can do two disciplines. All team members have access to the transition areas. There is one timing chip worn by the swimmer first (on the ankle), then handed to the cyclist at the racked bike in Transition 1, where the timing chip is placed around the cyclist’s left ankle. During the cycle, the runner waits in Transition 2 by the empty racking position, and when the cyclist arrives and racks the bike, the timing chip is placed around the ankle of the runner before she/he starts the run.

  • How can I update my personal details on my entry?

    You can update your personal details on your 2020 entry here.

  • Are there any festivities planned?

    There’s a full weekend of activities and festivities planned for Bermuda’s World Triathlon 2020 including a kids race, an after party and more.

    The schedule will be published on this website soon.

  • I wish to start with my friends. What can I do?

    Waves will be organised in age group categories and therefore unfortunately cannot be changed.

    You will get your start wave as soon as you come to the AG registration located at the event’s official hotel, Hamilton Princess Hotel.

  • Do I need to be a member of my Country or National Triathlon Association to compete?

    No, you do not need to be a member of any association to participate, we ask this question as part of the registration process for our records.

Rules and Regulations Topics

  • What are the most important rules that must be followed?

    Some of the most important rules relate to the cycle section and transition. Please follow all rules from the Bermuda Triathlon Association.

    For example:

    • Your cycle helmet must be on your head and fastened whenever you are in contact with your bike. So don’t take the bike off the rack until your helmet is on and done up, and don’t unfasten your helmet until your bike is back on the rack after your cycle section.
    • You must rack your bike in the correct allotted space in transition.
    • You must not mark your position in the transition in any way.
    • You must not use headphones or a mobile phone either in transition or at any time during the race.
    • No drafting on the bike course - which means not cycling too close to the bike in front.
    • Your race number should be worn on your front for the run. This is most easily achieved using a number belt, which you have to provide yourself.
  • Are wetsuits allowed?

    Wetsuits are allowed in water temperatures of 22C (71.6F) degrees or colder for Age Group athletes.

    The Technical Officials will determine one hour prior to race start if wetsuits are allowed. In the past 2 years age group athletes have been allowed to wear wetsuits.

  • Is this race draft legal?

    Neither the Sprint nor Standard are draft legal events.

    Distance and passing rules are the standard ITU rules.
